NRI investment in private limited company is fast becoming a trend, with more and more people opting to invest their money in such a manner. A common doubt we hear is whether investment by NRI in an Indian company is possible. Further, with the simplification of the procedure, we also receive several queries regarding Indian company registration for NRIs. So, in order to make things clearer, and to ensure that you are familiar with the latest rules and regulations, we have gathered all the essential information you will need regarding NRI investment in private limited company.
Private Limited Companies are those that are managed and run by a group of private individuals or an individual. These companies do not announce or offer shares in the market or trade in the stock exchange, as is done by Public Limited Companies. Another feature that distinguishes a private limited company from a public limited company is the number of shareholders. Essentially, a minimum of two investors are required for a private limited company, and a maximum of fifty investors are allowed.

Thus, NRIs can make direct investments in a private limited company, without seeking a complicated approval procedure from the Reserve Bank of India. Further, in order to encourage investments by NRIs, the procedure for registration of a private company in India are also not overly complicated.
